DID  YOU  KNOW THAT  THE GARDEN CLUB  HAS AN AREA INSIDE  THE COMMUNITY  VOLUNTEER  GARDEN  WHERE CELEBRATION - MEMORIAL - HONOR  TYPE ENGRAVED  BRICKS ARE  INSTALLED ?  It is located at the main entrance, around the three birch trees that are in a huge raised planter !  Anyone can personalize a brick and help support the Community Garden Club - which uses proceeds to maintain and improve our gorgeous community garden - which is sort of like the only real  "park" located here in our Creston area !! Applications to create a personal brick are right there at the entrance to the Garden - which is located on Swayze Street, next to the Rodeo Grounds, and for more info on this idea, please call Judy at  805-226-9489. I have purchased two bricks so far -  one that honors friends and family, and the other that honors the memory of my two beloved BLM Mustangs, who were very dear to me, of course ! The cost for three lines is $75.  I am guessing that there are over 50 bricks in that area so far.

   The local Friends of the Creston Library meets at  11:30 am on the Second Thursday each month. Lots of exciting activities at the Library ! the backyard project has made some progress in the last two years: a healthy, flowering Locust was donated by the Garden Club and installed into the ground by Kay and Paul Kunzler. Several local residents have been creating the landscape in the back yard.
